The power of essential oils....I have been with one of our friends she is one of our Essential oil distributors from Bismarck. 6 months ago she had a pretty major back surgery procedure done. They ended up putting a cage around one of her vertebrae BC of a disk problem. Not long after that she fell and the cage SLIPPED! OUCH! She has been putting up with lots of leg/nerve/back pain since. They finally agreed to go in and fix the problem...this time pulling more muscle tissue into and unto the cage area to hold it in place.

I was not there last time but her family was. Getting Krista comfortable B4 on the last surgery required narcotic after narcotic and they got her to a tolerable state never really covering the pain from what I am told. This time they pulled more muscle tissue into the area and anchored the cage in farther into her spine....the great news is ~ with the help of essential oils from the Raindrop Kit...Frankincense..Melissa...Palo Santo....& PanAway...Krista was off of the pain pump in 6 hours (last time she was on it for 48 hours)! This time she was able to come home with 1/4th of the pain meds.

Today about 5 minutes after getting home she was walking around the house as if nothing had happened...and she has had company all day. This is less than 72 hours after another major back surgery. Maybe someday she can put into words for us what the difference was. I was there this time and the only way I knew she had surgery is when I was pouring Frankincense into the staples that the surgeon left behind. What a beautiful thing to witness!
NOTE: We only put the oils from the Raindrop oils on the spine of her feet. Just so you know.

In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link

(Black cumin) has shown a broad spectrum of pharmacological effects like antipyretic [fever reducing], analgesic [pain reducing], anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial....

In addition to its antimicrobial effects, the anti-inflammatory analgesic properties of lavender oil have also been emphasized... The use of L.
